Yes, but I guess that's exactly it. I wouldn't trade my
20V 200Q for anything, but you instantly know you don't have
a V8 under the hood when you drive it, especially from a
standstill. You do have to drive it with ... how shall I put it
... verve and enthusiasm to induce it to give of its best.
Add to that the fact that there's no wheel-spin even on
(to borrow a metaphor from a previous posting) NHRA style
launches probably lessens the drama a bit.
